Breast Implants Feel Different from Natural Breast
Before having your boobs done, it’s vital to know that your breasts won’t feel the same way again.
Since breast implants are synthetic and man-made, they don’t feel like natural breast tissue. Although it’s worthy to note that silicone gel implant may feel more natural to the touch than the saline ones.
If you’re planning to have breast surgery, you should talk with your surgeon about the choices you have. Let the doctor help you decide on which procedure best suits you and the outcome you can expect.
How Much Does It Cost to Have Breast Plastic Surgery?
One more factor to consider in deciding whether to have breast surgery is the price.
It all depends on what procedures you like. If you want a separate breast lift or a breast augmentation, it’ll cost you less.
If you want both procedures, which is the ideal and recommended, the surgery may cost you double. Generally, one breast surgery procedure may cost you an average of $3,719.
For some people, that’s a lot of money. So, make sure you come prepared. Once you’ve made the decision, save up for it. The important thing is that, so long as you’re doing it for yourself, then there’s too high a price to stop you from achieving it.
How Long is the Recovery Time?
A surgery isn’t a simple procedure. It involves a great deal of preparation and time to recover.
Patients will only have to take five to seven days off work for a combined breast lift and augmentation surgery. But, there’s no assurance that you’ll feel completely healed after one week.
But if your work doesn’t involve manual labor or heavy lifting, and you’re already in good-enough shape, then you can go back to work.
The week-off from work is essential for you to focus on healing. Your body has been through a procedure and around this time, you might feel sensitive. You may feel uncomfortable bending down or reaching out.
You should have someone with you to help around the house during the recovery. You need a person you can trust to be around particularly on the first 24 hours of post operation.
Also, as you heal, check your breasts and note for any signs of infection. The signs and symptoms include fever, flu-like symptoms, redness, pus, and swelling.
Report these signs to your surgeon because infection is a serious condition. Left untreated, it may lead to serious complications.
You Should Prepare Yourself Emotionally, Psychologically and Physically
Before going under the knife, you should be ready for the vast changes in store for you after the surgery.
Prepare yourself for the changes you’ll go through. For instance, you can’t sleep facing down. You should practice sleeping on your back on the first few days or weeks after the surgery.
You’ll feel amazed how breast surgery can benefit you emotionally and psychologically. You’ll feel better and more attractive. For many women, this surgery is a step toward accepting that they can enhance what they already have.
There’s nothing wrong with improving one’s appearance, so long as you’re doing it to feel better about yourself.
Breast lift, breast augmentation, or plastic surgery as a whole is a choice. Before you decide, make sure you have taken note of all the information we gave you. You should further discuss with your doctor the pros and cons of these procedures.
Don’t just jump to your decision without thinking. This way, you will be genuinely happy with the result of the surgery.
